Cancers in Australia in 2010 attributable to the consumption of alcohol.
CONCLUSIONS: More than 3,000 cancers were attributable to alcohol consumption and thus were potentially preventable. IMPLICATIONS: Strategies that limit alcohol consumption to guideline levels could prevent a large number of cancers in Australian adults.

Cancers prevented in Australia in 2010 through the consumption of aspirin.
CONCLUSIONS: At current levels of consumption, a small but measurable reduction in cancer incidence can be attributed to daily aspirin use. IMPLICATIONS: Assuming the benefits outweigh the harms of known gastrointestinal toxicity and other hazards, aspirin use may be considered for some people to prevent the development of particular gastrointestinal cancers.

Cancers in Australia in 2010 attributable to inadequate consumption of fruit, non-starchy vegetables and dietary fibre.
CONCLUSIONS: One in six colorectal cancer cases was attributable to inadequate intake of dietary fibre and about 1,800 cancers at other sites were attributable to insufficient fruit and non-starchy vegetable consumption. IMPLICATIONS: Increasing the proportion of Australians who consume the recommended intake of fruit, vegetables and fibre could prevent up to 4% of all cancers.

Cancers in Australia in 2010 attributable to the consumption of red and processed meat.
CONCLUSIONS: About one in six colorectal cancers in Australians in 2010 were attributable to red/processed meat consumption.

Cancers in Australia in 2010 attributable to and prevented by the use of menopausal hormone therapy.
CONCLUSIONS: MHT use caused more than 500 cancers in Australian women in 2010 and prevented ∼50 colorectal cancers. IMPLICATIONS: MHT use continues to cause an excess of cancers. The risks, benefits, regimen and treatment duration should be carefully considered for each woman before MHT is commenced.

Cancers in Australia in 2010 attributable to and prevented by the use of combined oral contraceptives.
CONCLUSIONS: A small proportion of breast and cervical cancers is attributable to combined OCP use; OCP use is likely to have prevented larger numbers of endometrial and ovarian cancers. IMPLICATIONS: Women seeking contraceptive advice should be told of potential adverse effects, but should also be told that - along with reproductive health benefits - combined OCP use can reduce long-term risks of ovarian and endometrial cancers.

Cancers in Australia attributable to exposure to solar ultraviolet radiation and prevented by regular sunscreen use.
CONCLUSIONS: Although our approach was conservative, a high proportion of skin cancers in Australia are attributable to high ambient levels of UVR. Prevailing levels of sunscreen use probably reduced skin cancer incidence by 10-15%. IMPLICATIONS: Most skin cancers are preventable. Sunscreen should be a component of a comprehensive sun protection strategy. PMID: 26437734 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health)

Cancers in Australia in 2010 attributable to modifiable factors: summary and conclusions.
CONCLUSIONS: At least one in three cancers in Australia is attributable to exposure to known modifiable factors.

The mental health benefits of relationship formalisation among lesbians and gay men in same-sex relationships.
CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS: Relationship formalisation appears to be an important protective factor for mental health among gay men and lesbians, especially among younger sexual minority individuals.

A systematic review of the evidence that swimming pools improve health and wellbeing in remote Aboriginal communities in Australia.
CONCLUSIONS: Although a case can be made regarding skin infections and the broader wellbeing benefits that swimming pools may bring to remote Aboriginal communities, the benefit to ear and eye health remains unresolved.

Using data linkage to improve the completeness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander status in communicable disease notifications in Victoria.
CONCLUSIONS: Data linkage improved completeness of Indigenous status in notifications for viral hepatitis and gonococcal infection in Victoria.

The portrayal of mental health in Australian daily newspapers.
CONCLUSIONS: Our analysis suggested that positive mental health messages are commonly presented, particularly in tabloid coverage, which appears to place greater emphasis on wellbeing. However, improvements in the representation of psychotic disorders appear to be less progressive than other disorders. This suggests mental health professionals and organisations need to continue building relationships with and providing education to journalists to ensure responsible representations continue to dominate. IMPLICATIONS: This study provides an updated and holistic examination of the media's portrayal of mental health withi...

The significance of relational continuity of care for Māori patient engagement with predominantly non-Māori doctors: findings from a qualitative study.
CONCLUSIONS: Facilitating relational continuity of care for Māori patients and their clinicians may contribute towards mediating determinants of inequality at the clinical interface. IMPLICATIONS: Reducing significant health disparities between Māori and non-Māori was a key goal of the reconfiguration of primary healthcare in the early 2000s. The role of relational continuity of care in achieving equitable inter-ethnic health outcomes in primary healthcare settings is an important consideration.

CONCLUSIONS: The documented improvements confirm that residing in these communities can help Aboriginal residents exert control over key aspects of their food supply.

Influenza and pneumococcal vaccination: do older people know if they have been vaccinated?
CONCLUSIONS: In this study, self-reported influenza vaccination was reliable. The term 'pneumococcal vaccination or Pneumovax' was poorly recognised by our telephone survey respondents as evident by the low rate of self-reported pneumococcal vaccination compared to a much higher rate of pneumococcal vaccinations recorded by GPs.

Dietary protein intake may reduce hospitalisation due to infection in Māori of advanced age: LiLACS NZ.
